In addition to being obsessed with independent music, I also make some of my own. Over the past few years, I’ve been remixing both indie and major artists’ music on Indaba Music and my recently released FreeMixes Vol.1.
I believe that remixing can greatly improve artists’ overall sound and reinvigorate songs that have otherwise lost their luster. They can beautifully complement your original material, be used as a bonus for the purchase of your album, or a plethora of other possibilities. Remixes can also work very well as promotional tools – why else would some artists spend upwards of $2,000 to source a remix of one song?
The Pitch and the Catch (or Lack Thereof)
For independent artists looking to expand their sound, I provide diverse, high quality, electronic-based remixes of songs you’d like to use to promote your hard work. I charge a flat fee of $75 per song, and you will keep all of the rights. It is your music, after all. I do ask to be credited in the song title (i.e., “Song Name – Ark Arsenal Remix”), but that is up to you.
As an added bonus, if your original music is featured on Bandcamp’s Best, the remix can be featured on a self-released remix compilation (much like the Best of Bandcamp’s Best Vol.1), but only if you want it to be.
Get In Touch
If you’re a band or musician of any genre looking to expand your sound with a shiny, fancy-pants remix, email me at email@example.com with:
- your artist/band name;
- a link to the original song(s) you’d like remixed; and
- a desired sound you’d like to achieve, including artists that you want it to sound like.
If you don’t have a preference on the sound, or don’t know where to start, that’s fine too. My sound is extremely versatile and can range from integrating a real world sound to soothing ambiance or off-the-deep-end electronic madness. I am willing to work with you on up to two revisions to get the remix sounding exactly the way you want it to.
You do not need to have your music on Bandcamp, nor be featured on Bandcamp’s Best for us to work together. I would actually prefer using Soundcloud or Google Docs, so an account at either one is recommended.
We can hammer out the details of the arrangement when you email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
